Parrot Behaviour Training and Enrichment Workshops

Designed for the pet parrot owner, or prospective pet parrot owner, who would like a more rewarding and fulfilling relationship with their bird. This two-day Workshop will give the attendees the basic methods and tools required to teach their birds using positive reinforcement. Topics covered in this workshop include:

+ Understanding bird behaviour
+ The basics of training
+ Reading & interpreting a birds body language
+ Training basic behaviours
+ Problem behaviours and solutions
+ Training advanced behaviours
+ Enrichment principles
+ Enrichment design and implementation

The course will consist of lectures, practical sessions, interactive activities, written materials and live presentations. The workshops aim to be both a fun and educational experience.

The two-day workshops are charged at £200 for World Parrot Trust members, or £220 for non-members. This included admission to Paradise Park for both days at the weekend, all course materials, morning and afternoon tea/coffee breaks, and a lunch cooked to order from Paradise Parks restaurant.

Please note that attendees may not bring their own birds to the workshop for welfare reasons, although videos/dvds of problem behaviours will be welcomed.


We aim to run two courses a year, the dates of which, along with information on booking and local accomodation, can be found in the Upcoming Courses section, here.
